Bed Tilt to Replace Fuel Pump Alone

Since I will have to do this by myself I'm thinking of using a jack. How much will I have to raise the front of the bed to get the pump in and out ? Remove front bolts, loosen rear bolts, bolts for filler tube ? Would I need to remove the bumper or anything else I'm not thinking of ?

If you get replacement fuel pump assembly then you will know how high it needs to go, so you can pull the old one out and put the new one in.

But, I would remove all the bed bolts and filler to bed connection and try to slide the bed back, tail light wires may need to be unplugged that varys by year.

The fuel pump access hole is very close to the back of the cab, so you just need to slide the bed back enough to work between bed and cab.

Short video here:

2006 may use a two hose filler/vent vs the one hose as shown in the video

For the bumper, it depends on the bumper you have but you should have the clearance to lift and slide it

I'm probably going to have to do two, one on my 06 ex cab and another on my little 00 stepside that's been sitting for 3 or 4 years after it was wrecked. I put a pump motor in the 00 about a year before it sat. Took the bed off that time, but had help then and can't remember just how heavy it is. Was just looking at this video right now.

When we did my brother's ranger fuel pump we had three of us on hand. One gut futzed with the hoses and filler neck while the other two lifted. Bed is not that heavy, two people could lift it. But IIRC, the hoses & filler was a nuisance and that 3rd person just made it easier.

IIRC, the fuel pump is perhaps a bit over a foot in length.

i did mine in a few hours by my self. i just "walked" the bed back one side at a time. it took me longer to take the tool box and bed liner out than to replace the fuel pump!
